Apiary visits are weather-dependent!
Beesuits are available for loan so you only need to bring wellington boot and rubber gloves for protection. Usually, groups of 6 or so are taken on the hive inspections and the findings are explained and discussed. This is very useful for novices to improve their handling skills and for anyone still unsure about keeping bees.
Many experienced beekeepers like to attend to keep up their skills and discuss their bee problems with friends.
